Meet The Sellers Of Discogs

Discogs doesn’t have a warehouse full of rare records. All items are from individual Sellers. The Sellers of Discogs are about as diverse a group as you can imagine. They range from individuals selling a few records to brick-and-mortar stores with thousands of available items. Anyone can sell music on Discogs.

What’s in your record collection is only half the story. Music obsessives like us need all the stories beyond the songs, the strife in the studio, and the struggle behind the songwriting; the stuff that can only be found in (auto)biographies lyric collections, sheet music, documentaries, biopics, music videos, and gig posters, prints and promo materials.


Our Community Is Amazing

Meticulous Database submission experts, obscure music aficionados, dollar bin divers, attic treasure trawlers, savvy indie label marketers.

Two things they all have in common: they love music and they’re on Discogs.
